Alameda County Regional Housing Survey

The City of Pleasanton and the County of Alameda want your feedback on housing issues as part of an action-focused report called the 2020-2024 Alameda County Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (Regional AI).  The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires federally funded jurisdictions, such as Pleasanton, to affirmatively further fair housing by providing the Regional AI which is required for Pleasanton to continue to qualify to receive federal grant funds that could be used for affordable housing acquisition, new construction, or rehabilitation, and other affordable housing-related activities such as tenant-based rental assistance and housing rehabilitation programs.


Your feedback will help guide housing policies and goals in Alameda County and Pleasanton!


To provide you feedback, please complete the online Alameda County Regional Housing Survey and share your views on housing characteristics and housing needs.


This survey is also available online in Spanish (Español) and Traditional Chinese (中文). If the above link does not work, go to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/housingsurvey_alameda2019.


The survey will be available until August 23rd at 5pm.
